    Teach her to stand still by you if a horse fly attacks. My mare was/is a fat freak about them.

    Go out in the field and swat them for her while she's grazing.
    You can halter her/loop a lead around her neck to spin her if she wants to run.
    When one lands, square her up and make her stand still so you can swat it. She'll catch on quick that even if you don't get it the first time you will the second. Also gets them used to you smacking them knowing now its for a reason.
    (I've swatted some new horses and they'd flip, now I can beat them to death and they like it! LOL!)

    We ride down in some gullys where they are really bad. Used to have to lead her when when they showed up because she'd go nuts bucking and even try to roll. Now she knows we're the best defense and she'll stop dead in her tracks till we kill the culprit.

    If the horse flies are really bad I'll use the latigos on the saddle to tie an old towel over the horse's butt. Or you can get one of these if you want to spend the money on it.
